Its production is influenced by geographical climate, living customs and aesthetic taste. It is also an objective reflection of the changes in social politics, economy and culture. At the same time, it is a product of material and culture that conforms to the trend of history and seeks new beauty. , in constant evolution and development. When wearing a formal suit, a beautiful tie is attached, which is both beautiful and elegant, and gives a sense of elegance and solemnity. However, the tie that symbolizes civilization has evolved from uncivilization. Legend has it that in the Middle Ages, the popular, unkempt, bearded Englishman used his sleeves to wipe his beard when he was eating. The women who want to wash their clothes are naturally hateful.
Therefore, women hang a piece of cloth under the collar of men, and they can use this cloth to wipe when they need to wipe their mouths. And there are still a few small stones on the man’s cuffs. When men use their sleeves to wipe their mouths, they will be scratched by stones. For a long time, the cloth hanging under the collar and the small stones clad on the cuffs became the traditional attachment of the British men’s tops – the tie around the neck and the button on the cuff. Of course, there are other legends, such as the tie used by early Irish fishermen to use the strips on the neck to observe the wind when fishing in the sea; or the first half of BC, the wife or lover of ancient Roman soldiers for peace. a guardian towel tied around their neck; or a knife left by British soldiers after the Middle Ages to cover up the battle. Their authenticity has not been verified, but the use of cloth and other things to decorate the neck is indeed a rise from the war activities. Although the arguments are different, according to historical data, the most authentic origin should be France.
The medieval European war continued for years, and in 1688 King Louis XIV of France launched the Battle of Paratine to the Austrian Habsburg dynasty. At that time, the Austrian soldiers had a white cloth scarf on their necks as a symbol, and this decoration called “Croatta” was appreciated by Louis XIV. The king made a lofty self and wore it in the palace. After a long time, the king was very tired of the “Croatta”, so he thought about turning up the new tricks, ordered the embroidered lace on the “Croatta”, and formed a chest on the chest. The big bow is very gorgeous. This kind of decoration quickly became popular in the court, and it has spread to the French army. At one time, the soldiers who had been in the first place played a playful neck. Then Louis XIV’s love for “Croatta” was intensified, and a “Croatta” company was specially named, which contributed to the popularity of “Croatta” in the French army. The appearance of “Croatta” and the praise and promotion of King Louis XIV in the history of tie development played a very important role.
Interestingly, the “Croatta” invented in Louis XIV is gradually divided into two categories, one is getting longer and longer, then it becomes a tie; the other is getting shorter and shorter, climbing up, This is the “brother” of the tie – the bow tie. After “Croatta”, France was still popular in 1668 and has developed into an important part of men’s clothing. At that time, the appearance of the tie was not far from the modern tie, but the wearing method was quite special. At that time, the tie was wrapped around the neck for two times, and the ends were randomly pulled. There are three or four knotted corrugated straps under the tie. It may seem ridiculous now, but at that time it was a symbol of etiquette. In the eighteenth century, the French bourgeois revolution declared the end of the court aristocratic life, and the men gave up the slick attire and replaced it with a simple and plain dress. At this time, the existence of the tie was a surprise to the general public who was self-proclaimed gentlemanly at that time. Whether it is “Lower Liba” or “Wang Sun Aristocrat” has delved into the unique charm of the tie. At that time, the poet Byron was also unconventional. Even at that time, he was “famous” because of his harsh attitude towards the tie system. Wenhao Balzac also dumped the charm of the tie, and in 1827 he used text to promote it throughout France. It is reported that Balzac is still the first person to discuss the tie in the form of literary works, and the promotion of the tie is a great achievement.
